Explanation

Council Variance Application: CV21-043

APPLICANT: Erika Gilmore; 12 Highgrove; New Albany, OH 43054.

PROPOSED USE: An eight-unit apartment building and a three-unit dwelling on the same lot.

NEAR EAST AREA COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Approval.

CITY DEPARTMENTS' RECOMMENDATION: Approval. The site is currently developed with a nonconforming eight-unit apartment building and a two-unit dwelling on one parcel zoned in the R-3, Residential District. A Council variance is necessary because the current zoning district permits only single-unit dwellings, while the applicant proposes to conform the eight-unit apartment building and add a third unit to the two-unit dwelling. The request includes variances to reduce the required number of parking spaces, perimeter parking lot screening, and maximum and minimum side yards. The site is within the planning area of the Near East Area Plan (2005), which does not recommend a land use for this location, but recommends that new housing be consistent with the housing types, density, and development pattern of the neighborhood. City staff supports the request because the eight-unit apartment is existing and the third unit will be added to the two-unit dwelling with no exterior building expansion. The proposal also includes improved parking providing a defined rear yard area for the units and will not add incompatible uses to the area.
